- Ship designs and test, test, test. Understand what works by digging into quantitative data and understand why by conducting qualitative research.
- Help evolve our style guide and brand identity. The design team is small, therefore you’ll play a big role in shaping our visual language.
- Collaborate directly with a design sensible engineering team & founders
